Federer Fatalistic on Retaining Grand Slam Record

Roger Federer is fatalistic about his reign as Grand Slam king.

Rival Rafael Nadal edged Daniil Medvedev in the US Open final to claim his 19th Grand Slam title—closing the gap on 20-time Grand Slam king Federer to just one major.

The iconic rivals will join forces leading Team Europe in this weekend's Laver Cup. Federer told the media in Geneva, the Big 3 share a common quest: win Grand Slams.

“I'm just trying to keep winning and playing for Grand Slam wins," Federer said. “We will see how the race will go at the end.

“It's an amazing time for tennis with three players who were able to win so much. I try to have my best career, Rafa too. “Everyone, including Djokovic, wants to be fit and healthy."

Roger praised Laver Cup doubles partner Rafa for completing his fifth season winning multiple majors. Nadal, who contested three of the four Grand Slam finals, won Roland Garros and Flushing Meadows splitting the Slam spoils with world No. 1 Djokovic.

"Winning two Slams in a year is unbelievable," Federer said. "[Nadal] had to change something after dealing with issues on hard courts and he did it.

"With him I am never surprised because I know what he is a capable of. For me it's a deep satisfaction to play at such an age."
